SB Live! or nForce2 AC'97 Codec? Tags: Sound Cards Epox Codec Components Last response: July 3, 2003 1:15 PM in Components Share Shane_DA_BANE July 2, 2003 2:40:22 AM Hi. I recently purchased the Epox 8RDA+ mobo and I was wondering if I should use the onboard sound codec that this board provided, or should I stick to my old SB Live! sound card? Which one has better quality sound for gaming? More about : live nforce2 codec kinney July 2, 2003 3:07:25 AM I dont think the 8rda+ is soundstorm qualified. If it is, use the soundstorm. I'd probably ditch the soundblaster all together myself as long as the mobo does 4.1.

The 8RDA<b>3]</b>+ does not use the nVidia APU however. My CPU fan spins so fast that it creates a wormhole Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SB Live!
